Application for the Position of Casting Director

Dear Producer,

As an experienced Casting Director with a 5-year track record in the TV and film industry, I apply with enthusiasm for this opportunity.

Having worked as a Casting Director at Warner Bros. Entertainment, Inc. for the past 2 years, I am adept at all aspects of your requirements, from initial production meetings to discuss casting requirements and budget through to casting calls and contract negotiations. I excel at:

  • Managing the casting budget and coordinating with the production accountant
  • Conducting research and generating casting reports on existing and prospective casting leads
  • Designing strategies and arranging for necessary equipment and venues for casting
  • Managing contacts with talent agencies and keeping them posted about the casting requirements

I also worked as a Casting Assistant then Casting Director at Granat Entertainment for 3 years.

I have outstanding knowledge of available casting talent, a powerful instinct for recognizing talent, and excellent organizational, communication, and interpersonal skills. In particular, I excel at handling unexpected challenges and complex requirements. For example, after the lead actor in the film In High Water left the production 3 days before filming due to a family emergency, I sourced and secured a replacement within 24 hours.

In addition to my professional experience, I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts and am a member of the Casting Society of America

Please find attached my resume for your consideration. Thank you very much for your time. I look forward to hearing from you regarding next steps.

Yours faithfully,

Christopher Annen
